Our Effect

Homelessness and health care are interwoven, constantly affecting one another. Only treating one allows the other to fester, perpetuating and individual’s cycle of homelessness. Care For the Homeless providers and staff understand the importance of this intersection and work to address the whole person; who they are, what their background is, and what their current situation is as well as their medical needs. This health care model highlights the many nuances and complexities homelessness presents and breaks down the prejudices stacked against it.

Explore this page to read the stories of those who have overcome the many obstacles homelessness presents as well as discover ways that you can join us in our mission to end homelessness.
